I don't know what your field of work is but could you possibly find a comparable position in London? That would get you a lot closer to your family but still give you the challenges and the salary that are appropriate for someone with your education. You worked very hard for those degrees and it would be great to leverage them into a career you enjoy but that still gives you a life of your own. My son and his wife did all their degrees in London, have a home there and both work for the university in different capacities. The housing prices are much more reasonable and the lifestyle is more laid back than KW or Toronto, where my son grew up. It sounds more like the job is sucking the life out of you and a change there would make you happier all around.
Please don't litter. Neuter your pets!
